Making good Mondays is like making coffee -

The week is before us - like the coffee pot - waiting to brew. Making it good is a matter of choice, luck, creativity, patience and acceptance of the outcome.

Following are some of my favorite tweets from the social website, Twitter. Enjoy!

"RT @JayAckroyd I continue to note despite what Baucus or Conrad says, there R 60 cloture votes, +more than 51 #hcr votes 4 a public option," included for her outstanding tweeting skill: kudos to Libby Spencer (8/17/09).

"Looking ahead, here are the most exciting cars coming in 2010" is from Time Magazine (8/17/09).

"The Funniest Signs From The Town Hall Protests (PICS)," is from The Huffington Post (8/17/09).

"About to engage in seat change negotiations with other passengers so each kid doesn't have to sit alone. Kids are unwashed which might help," is from a favorite journalist, John Dickerson (8/17/09).

"Hot, humid day here in Toronto. First tweet from iPod on wifi. Ain't technology great?," is from my editor at The Reaction, Michael J.W. Stickings, a very new tweeter (8/15/09).

"markknoller@GeeCarol agreed. we need to support newspapers" is from a rather recognizable White House correspondent (Mark Knoller), an answer that signifies the interactive fun of Twittering.

"Interesting," is from Senator Claire McKaskill (8/2/09). She liked a very edgy piece "What's Not to Like" in Newsweek by Jonathan Alter. His subtitle" "Reform? Why do we need health-care reform? Everything is just fine the way it is."
